Happy Mother's Day

No, that's not ironic... It is quite a Happy Mother's Day weekend here in the Young household.

Yesterday included:
  • A trip to Target
  • A wonderful time at the Collingswood farmer's market buying fresh veggies and watching Baxter and his girlfriend Hazel shake their booties to the live music
  • A yummy picnic lunch in the backyard with Michelle, Jamie, and Baxter
  • Receiving cheery Mom's day cards from Michaela, Michelle, and Heather (Heather - you are my hero, btw, with a subscription to US Weekly!! I'm never leaving the house again).
  • A 2 hour nap fo' Mama AND Bax
  • Some arts and crafts in the backyard with baxter and neighborhood kids
  • Yummola dinner at Buca di Beppo with Michelle, Scott, Jamie, and Baxter
And the whole time, Bax was pretty darned charming.

Today, Baxter and I are going on a surprise trip, escorted by CSM... to... somewhere!

Also, in Today's Philly Inquirer, I'm quoted in an article about The Daily Show's influence on young people.

Yes, the article's author spelled my first name incorrectly. Yes, that's super effing annoying, but... whatevs. That's life.

Funny tidbit

I just remembered that last year on Mother's Day, when Mike was in the hospital, I was trying to get him to remember it was Mother's day.... I said,

"Do you know what today is?"

"Ummm... nope." he said with a smile.

"I'll give you a hint," I said, "It's a day to celebrate people like me."

"It's brown-noser's day?" He smiled.

He was always always funny. Always so freaking funny.

The funny thing is, Baxter is just the same. This morning, I got him out of his crib with his taggie and his duck blanket. "Bax" I said, "Do you remember what day it is?"

"Ummmm..." he said and looked around and his eyes landed on his duck blanket, "Is it DUCK day?" he said with a sheepish grin across his face.

"NO!" I said, feigning frustration, "It's not DUCK day!"

He laughed.

"Baxter, remember, all week long at school they talked about how this weekend you were going to tell your mama, 'Happy....... What?"

"Happy DUCK DAY!"

I attacked him with tickles and finally he acknowledged that it was mother's day.

Freaking comedians.
